#2627886 9/30 Exhibition GDT : Red Wings 7 at Penguins 2

Posted by kipwinger on 01 October 2015 - 12:19 PM

I definitely think some are likely. If we're being specific to next season, I see Richards, Quincey, Miller and Andersson moving on. I'm not totally sold on Datsyuk retiring a year early; Franzen's more likely. I also think one of Smith/Kindl gets moved this year (or in the offseason), and one gets to finish his contract. I'd prefer to see Ouellet, Marchenko AND Jensen up next season, but I think it'll be two of the three. Sproul's on the outside looking in right now, IMO.

I can see a battle between some of the skilled players, but I think Nyquist is safe. I wouldn't be surprised to see Jurco and Pulkkinen pitted against each other, though. Different style of player, but they're going to feel a push from Mantha and Bertuzzi.

I'm torn on the Helm thing, but I'm definitely hoping for it. It just doesn't make sense to keep him with Larkin and Athanasiou on their way up soon.


I wasn't implying Datsyuk would leave a year early.  Sorry if it came across that way.  I think he'll leave at the end of his contract. 

#2621629 Line combos for 97, 98 Cups?

Posted by barabbas16 on 27 July 2015 - 02:40 PM

For 97, I think I remember seeing...


Yzerman with Sandstrom and Lapointe

Fedorov with Kozlov and Brown

Larionov with Shanahan and McCarty

Draper with Maltby and Kocur

#2613187 Which Sweater Do RWs Retire First - Feds or Ozzy?

Posted by Jacksoni on 04 June 2015 - 06:56 PM

What the heck.. Where is the 'None' button?

None of those players will have their jerseys retired. It's original six Gordie Howe Detroit, not a florida team playing hockey when folks are suntanning outside and couldn't give a s***.


Don't get me too wrong those players are good, Fedorov was probably born on skates. I wouldn't have lifted an eyebrow if he skated in an individual program in the olympics.

But they are not generational players. Like Howe. Like Yzerman. Like Lidström.

No siree.


As a sidenote, I personally nominee Holmström as a generational player and should have his jersey retired at the Joe.

I've never seen a young player go from so bad one season, to so integral the next. Good on you, Glendening.

#2598584 ECQF : (8) Pittsburgh Penguins vs. (1) New York Rangers

We actually have a good record against the Rangers this year, so I wouldn't mind playing them.  I just want the Pens out.  They're a streaky team and if they would somehow come back and win this series, they'll be a pain to knock out.  And as much as I'd like to listen to NBC praise the greatness of Crosby, I'd rather just see the disappointed look on his face during the handshake after Game 5.

If he went through the handshake line.

Babcock postgame: 


I liked our compete level, we got more shots on goal, that's something that we talked about.  It's a race to 4, we got one, they got one ... that's hockey.  We'll regroup and head back home and work on a couple more things and be ready to go.

James wizniewski scratched tonight lmao ... And people actually were mad we didn't trade for him

Nice to see people finally opening up to the possibility of trading howard ... Howard's still a number 1 but mrazek is miles ahead adding a solid veteran goalie along mrazek and then trading howard will only make this team stronger


You mean James "fair market" Wizniewski?

I love that marchenko is in game 1, but the only thing I don't like is that he should have been up here at the deadline, getting used to playing with a certain partner

Smith back. Don't get me wrong, I hate Kindl too, but there's no way he'd touch the ice if he did the same thing.

Can you imagine if Weiss did that?!

All right guys, any more personal attacks and I'm going to hand out suspensions.  I highlighted my post in blue just so it's more visible.

Nyquist has made more turnovers in the last two games than Weiss has all season.

Get Zidlicky out there, we got him for these moments.

#2574767 Patrick Kane, out anywhere from a month to rest of the season

Posted by T.Low on 25 February 2015 - 12:13 PM

Looks like absolutely zero impact to his midsection from the touch. No change in direction or momentum whatsoever. Put me on record stating injury was a result of his embellishment.

It's amazing the abuse the Wings were able to withstand last night vs the Kings, yet Kane goes down from that?

The ability to think outside the box and think for oneself whilst following the established rules and regulations and working as a member of a team is almost unheard of in the working world. 


Half the people out there aren't smart enough to do it and freeze up when anything goes wrong; the other half think they are smart enough and go whole-hog in their own direction for the sake of being different without considering the consequences of their actions.
